About Idaho Candy
Idaho Candy Company started as a small door-to-door business in 1901, moving to a new factory in 1909 to meet growing customer demand. The factory was touted as the most modern building in Boise, and Idaho Candy continues to produce its famous Idaho Spud Bars and Owyhee Butter Toffee in the same location, using some of the same equipment from the early 1900s. Today, Idaho Candy is owned by the Wagers family and has 23 employees. When he was president, John Wagers said he had the sweetest job in town. His son Dave Wagers now serves as the “Candyman” and president.
